We are delighted to be representing the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve, San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina, Colombia under the 'Global Biospheres' Mardi Gras theme.

Kate May (Art Teacher), says, “The students at Ryde Academy are working hard to make our section vibrant and lively. There is a great deal of enthusiasm for this year's parade, and I’m hoping that the students enjoy every aspect of the preparation as well as the day itself.”
This section has provided great scope for using eye-catching 3D pieces and bright colours, and the we are able to recycle costumes from the Rock Challenge team, in keeping with the ethos of helping to protect our global biospheres. 
Dance teacher Kate Lines adds, "I have the pleasure of choreographing and performing with the students at Mardi Gras. The project is fantastic for bringing students of all backgrounds and abilities together, to represent the Academy in a fun and positive way. I am very excited to bring together all their artistic and performing talent on Saturday, June 30.”
We proud to support the Mardi Gras, and since moving into the new school can also now offer community groups like the New Carnival Company space for their workshops. For the students, it is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and take part in a community event.
